Jaiku

Jaiku have been bought by Google which somehow lead me to this fascinating presentation by Jaiku founder Jyri Engeström about social peripheral vision.

The idea is that your address book on your mobile should be acting more like a cross between your instant messenger buddy list and your twitter page, allowing you to have a kind of "peripheral vision" of all your contacts and what they're up to, and consequently you might choose to contact them at different times or in different ways.

This seems like a very interesting  kind of ambient data.

Finally here's a quote:

To summarize. What I want to suggest is that unlike some handset manufacturers, mobile operators, and software companies want us to believe, Mobile 2.0 is not about streaming video, high-resolution displays, and music players that try to mimic the iPod. Instead, Mobile 2.0 is about enabling social peripheral vision. This is the next frontier for mobile developers, and it is where I believe the real advances in human mobile communication will happen in the next couple of years.

I totally agree. I'm far more interested in innovation around communication than I am in innovation around content.
